Carbajal Pays FPCC Fine

Supervisor Salud Carbajal and his 2012 campaign treasurer paid a $7,500 fine to the state’s Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) for neglecting to report four late contributions to other campaigns (worth $11,500) and accepting a $15,000 donation to their own campaign in the form of a cashier’s check, which must be less than $100. The matter will be officially resolved at a FPPC meeting on 4/16. The FPPC noted that Carbajal has “no prior enforcement history” and cooperated with the process. Carbajal called the errors “inadvertent and unintentional.”
